Why we do it

A point mutation in a heart-relevant gene seems to be linked to arrhythmia – can we confirm this in a mouse model? Within a patient study, an overexpressed gene is found to be linked to cancer – does suppressing it prevent a mouse from getting cancer?

Well-designed mouse models give clear-cut explanations, validate targets in the pharma discovery process, or hypotheses in academic research, and deliver surprising and novel insights that would not be possible otherwise.

Generating them: this is profoundly ethical, deeply complex and interesting, greatly captivating, and fundamentally relevant.

We share your fervor and engagement and are proud to partake in your research!

How we do it
